3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It pours a quite clear, golden body with an off-white head. Lovely hop-driven aroma, a bit perfumed, with hops and resin. The malts are sure present, but overpowered by the hops. That continues in the flavor, there’s a lovely hoppyness, pine and citrus, it’s quite fruity, and there’s still room for the malt. Full-bodied, quite sweetish, and it finishes with the same flavors it has initially. Lovely and easy to drink. Dangerously easy to drink. (080626)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden color, small white head. Flowery (trefoil) hoppy nose (no suprises here). Flowery with good malt profile, sweetish aftertaste. Well-balanced and enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: Golden straw color with a small, very small, amount of white foam that dissipates quickly. Not much carbonation to speak of.
S: Lots of citrus, most notable is lemon. There is also a mild pine scent. Not much malt to speak of.
T: A wonderful and powerful bitterness. Very piney, but also slight lemony notes. Again, not much malt shining through.
M: Very crisp beer with a lingering bitterness.
D: Highly drinkable, but watch out for this one, it will bite when you’re not looking at 6.9%.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2006 Orangey-gold colour. Rich woody nose with orange, toast, peach, kumquat. Long hoppy palate, some biscuity pale malts. Standard issue stuff, moderate bitterness and a bit fruitier and more approachable than most examples.

Draught at BBF13. Weak fruity aroma. Cloudy dark golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is nicely bitter, has a good tea note from the hops, like caramelly tea bonbons. Good hop bite. Well-balanced.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Akkurat - shared with Mette. Clear golden - white head. Grassy, dryness, light piney, light sweetness, light citrus, a rather simpel IPA -> simpel grassy hopped. OK - but it needs some complexity.
